I just had to add this tea! I am a big fan of aged TGY, and this one from Mandala has won me over! Can you say roasty toasty honey? I am not a connoisseur of honey like others, but this is nice and floral honey taste. It has just the right amount of floral as well, not overpowering or perfumey! I have been on the lookout for an aged TGY after having the Verdant aged TGY, and I like this one sooo much!
The roasting seems to fade off by the third steeping, leaving a lightly floral honey taste with a sweetness that lingers on the palate. I’m sure there are others who could describe this tea better than I can, so now that it is up on steepster I hope someone else will comment on this great tea! I am extremely pleased with Mandala Tea, I hope everyone enjoys their tea as much as I do!

Ok, I am definitely getting a great tea buzz! Great chaqi from this tea! I don’t know what it is about aged TGY, but 2-2 have gotten me pretty buzzed! This is a must try

While I have always liked tea, I have recently fallen off the deep end into loose tea madness :)

I have found that I prefer the darker spectrum of oolong teas like da hong pao, Shui Xian, dark roasted and/or aged TGY, and also Dancong’s. Pretty much anything but floral oolongs, they just arent my style. I also enjoy pretty much every black tea that I have tried! I am also getting more familiar with puer tea, and lately have been preferring shu over sheng…Good for the stomach, and the most likely way to find myself “tea drunk!”
